    Campaign - Funeral of the Sky



    FUNERAL OF THE SKY
    THE ANCIENT PROPHECY


    Introduction
    Enter the Sky at the dawning of a New Age. It has been decades since the last Great Sky War, where the heavens were split into two main empires; Olympus Kingdom and Sky Island Empire. Passing the torch to the new generation, the two brothers at the helm of the Sky took their leave by breath of death. In disarray, the New Age tries to piece together the remains, with the very heavens at stake.

    Laid to Rest
    On this day, the Sky will lay rest to its heart and soul. It has been a week since the two brothers laid their lives to save the Sky from the war against the Ocean. It has been a week since the news of their death shook the world. Majuro, Emperor of the Sky Island Empire, and Oldgate, King of the Olympus Empire, are to be laid to rest in their birthplace; Mount Ida. Thousands, of all races and creeds, have come to pay their respect, putting aside their differences to give homage to the Sky's heart and soul.

    Ancient Prophecy
    From Yonkous, to Emperors, to World Nobles, to Kings, the brother's deaths have convened the world's greatest powers in one island. At the back of their mind, one question remains; what will happen to the Sky? The Ancients prophecy speaks of the Day of Transgression, and Oracle's crystal ball is filled with blood. The Oracle has foretold the forging of the New Sky Age on this day. Will you be the one to shape the New Age of the Sky, or will you be swept along with the rest?

    STORYLINE
    Campaign Lore

    History of the Sky

    Spoiler:
    The Brothers Who Would Reign
    Two children were hidden from fate at birth. Two children were thrown to the Ocean at birth. Oldgate and Majuro. The children were raised in completely different ambiances. Oldgate, the oldest, came down like a meteor, blowing up the Flexington's cottage. There, he learned to love humans and explosions. Majuro, however, fell upon the Nobles, enslaved through his childhood. There, he learned the true nature of humanity. One raised amongst humanity’s love, and another raised humanity’s hate. Two brothers destined to claim the Sky and give it back to the people.

    Their hate never subsided. Their desire to rise was never sated. Thirty years later, the brothers brought war upon the footsteps of fate. Together, they brought an end to the Ancient Empire. Together, they paid for the sins. The sins of their father. The future of the Sky was uncertain. Raised alongside humans, Oldgate grew with love for sea-dwellers. Majuro, however, saw the human's dark note. Oldgate wished for peace between the two. Witnessing the human's nature of war, Majuro disagreed. To him, the only choice was to live apart. The brothers could not agree. The Sky came under the Sky Council, while both sides grew part, eventually declaring their independence as kingdoms in their own right: Sky Island Empire and Olympus Empire.

    The Great Sky Wars

    Spoiler:
    The War for the Sky
    50 years ago, war broke out. On the verge of Civil War, Olympus sought the aid of the WG. Seeing the balance threatened, the WG intervened, becoming a third party in the Civil War, forming what became to be known as the 'Sky Wars'. Olympus, Sky Empire, and WG. All three sides fought to a relative standstill, leaving tens of thousands dead. Some history books allege the clouds grew a red blooded hue as a consequence. Months lay waste to the Sky, culminating in the 'Battle of the Belfry'. The harp played the melancholy tune that would accompany the stench of bodies, piled as far as the eye could see. A man, trudging through the fallen, limped to the base of the large golden gates, towards the Belfry; Kogen Oldgate. On his back, a muscular woman with a vice-admiral cloak lay; Grandma Flexington. Both were extremely wounded, yet they entered the chamber anon, confronting Majuro.

    The WG and Olympus had formed an alliance, tipping the war against the Empire. Majuro refused to stand down. The camera whirled, picturing Oldgate on both his knees, his head slammed against the floor in reverence. Tears streamed down his face, completely surrendering his pride. His voice, now plagued in pain not of body, shook the belfry, enough for it to clang. Clang loud enough for the plea to enter the Majuro's heart. The clang that would signal the treaty that would split the Sky in two. Half of the Sky came below Majuo and the Sky Island Empire, and the other half came under Oldgate and the Olympus Empire. The treaty that would bring peace back to the sky. The treaty that would end the Great Sky War.

    Sand Sand Peaks: Crystal Saga
    [Sand Sand Peaks - pg. 4-49]
    Spoiler:
    Threat of War
    Spoiler:
    From the Sky above SSP, Agent VII slammed Oldgate's now comatose body to the ground. Atop him, VII's chains propped him up, bringing his golden gauntlet to his face, moving out of the shot. Activating, the old man appeared affront the transmission, alone. Flashback widening, it showed Agent VII speaking in Oldgate's voice. Highly advanced voice software, the chief gave the order of war. Who was behind the order? A fleet of airships descended upon the Ocean, manned by various Skypieans, a few islands away; the sky fleet approached G-5. The Sky was on its way to start a war. A war that would shift the balance of the ocean.

    Agent VII delivered Oldgate's body to Admiral Torque, sitting inside of Bdassaurus. It was here Admiral Torque learned of the Sky's impending attack on the WG. At a crossroads, Admiral Torque opted to believe in Oldgate's words of peace, and formed a new alliance to preserve the peace they had strived so long for. A dear friend of Admiral Torque's grandmother, Grandma Flexington, Oldgate revealed the power of the crystals. The Sky is plagued with microscopic crystals, combining with the sun and wind to form clouds. They regulate the temperature and solidity of the clouds. Should one de-stabalize them, the Sky ecosystem would collapse, threatening hundreds of islands. In SSP, however, a phenomenon made the crystals big enough to grasp. Should one collect them all, they gain the ability to control the Sky ecosystem. One could either destabilize the ecosystem or control the clouds on a whim. The ones behind the order aimed to create bridges of clouds to bring the armies to the Sky. Whoever controlled the crystals would control the looming war.

    Enter the Sky Island Empire
    Spoiler:
    On the other side of the island, recently rogue Agent Irra had betrayed the WG to get her hands on the island's famous crystals, killing off WG personnel. Pursued by Vice-Admiral Juri and Ironbeard Pirates, Irra fled. In the Battle of the Desert, she was confronted with Chief VII. WG official Zinel arrived at the scene, only to be confronted by ex-WG operative Hope. Zinel and Hope formed an alliance; to retrieve the crystals, their reasons still unknown.The battle raged on, with the parties fighting to a standstill. The Ironbeard pirates, Rasputin and Junket, recovered 25% of the crystals, and set a trap for Irra, Agent VII and Irra split, each recovering 25% of the crystals. Admiral Torque and Badassaurus recovered the last 25% of the crystals. All parties began to converge on the biggest pirate city in the island; The Fortress. It was here where the fate of the war would be decided.

    The wind howled through the desert, a massive hurracaine-like force erupting from the base of the stronghold. An event few would witness. The city was lifted off the ground. A crater left behind, the very city itself shot upwards to the clouds. A Sky Island. The camera focused on the tower at the top of the fortress. Inside, chief VII deliver the crystals to a man's feet, a man surrounded by imposing shadows. Majuro and the Sky Priests. It would be revealed the Empire had allied with the Nobles to recover the crystals. It was they, through chief VII and the Nobles, that sparked a war. The Empire wished for more than just war. They wished for relocation.

    Fight for the Crystals
    Spoiler:
    Various battles erupted through the Sky Island. The first sent Badassaurus plumetting to the desert below, outside of the grasp of the Sky Island. Irra was able to retain her crystals and defeat Agent VII, but not without sacrificing her ally Andra to Mastatrasha's blade. Kamina was approached by CP0, who convinced the man to join the Empire and strike back at Admiral Torque. Before entering the fortress, Irra was confronted by Vice-Admiral Juri, who had finally caught up with the traitor. In what would destabilize the temperature of the island, Irra defeated Vice-Admiral Juri in what became to be known as the Battle in the Blizzard. At the other side of the island, Oldgate, Tenguman engaged Sky Priest Smurfi. The latter was defeated upon the entry of a mysterious woman; Aurora Winters. Later, Irra/Roku was saved from Mastatrasha's blade by Ichimonji, who had come to see the New Generation through.

    Inside the fortress, Torque underwent the Ordeal of Mirrors. He learned from the Oracle that the Great Sky War had been sparked by none other than Oldgate and Grandma Flexington. The Empire was acting in self-defense and wished to relocate to the sky to escape humanity's madness. The World Nobles would use the vacant sky to transform it into a haven of slavery and perversion, to uplift the Twenty Kings to the sky as gods. The Empire had allied with the Nobles in exchange for the power of the crystals, to relocate to the Moon. All parties converged on the fortress to confront the Empire. The Empire held 50% of the crystals. Irra half the other 25% and Badassaurus held the last 25%. The ceiling of the fortress exploded, and the earth was severed, creating six small seperate small islands. The whole area was inside of Kamina's Birdcage, ever shrinking. Above the party stood the Empire, vowing their release from this world.

    End of the Great Sky Era
    Spoiler:
    Oldgate assured Torque that his decision would determine the fate of their worlds. The Empire had split their share of the cyrstals between the priests, and threaten to rue war to fulfill their dream. The Empire and the party engaged in glorious battle in each Sky Island for the crystals. Ichimonji and Randomosity, previous crewmates fought to a near standstill. Though Ichimonji lost his arm, he was able to defeat his ex-captain and recover his share of the crystals. Tenguman faced off against Kamina, in a battle that took place all over the sky. Tenguman was able to defeat the string man and reduce his dream of re-succession to World Noble status to nothing. Irra and Roku faced off Hobosaurus, in a battle that revealed the latter's hand in the death of Roku's wife. The commander of the Revolutionary Army was able to defeat Hobosaurus with the help of her father's love and recover the last share of his crystals. Before his death, Hobosaurus gave Irra a blue pendant, instructing her to follow the "blue lights".

    The final battle shook the Sky. Two brothers faced off again. Oldgate and Torque faced off against Emperor Majuro. The Oracle had told Torque of the last time Oldgate and Majuro faced each other in the Great Sky War. Oldgate was able to subdue Majuro for a final blow by Grandma Flexington. The final blow, however, would fell both Oldgate and Majruo. Grandma Flexington could not go through with it, and the war raged on. After a long battle, Torque found himself in the same situation, holding both of the brother's life in his hands. Making his choice, one that determined the fate of the war, Torque delivered the finishing blow upon both Majuro and Oldgate, nuking the sky.

    The Death of Brothers
    Spoiler:
    The two brothers fell. Surronded by the group, the two broters life began to escape them. Before death, Majuro apologized to his brother, calling on his dream to protect the Sky. The old man accepted his brother's apology with a kiss before the youngest passed on. Turning to Irra and Torque, Oldgate tasked them wiith his Dream of Unity between all races. To fashion the Sky as a safe haven for all races. The old man called the alliegiance that day as proof of that dream coming true. Surrunded by those loved, Oldgate passed on.

    War still loomed. Combining the crystals, Ichimonji was able to cretae a barrier between the opposing parties in G-5, showing the sacrifice from both Marines and Sky. The act of selflessness stopped the initiation of the war. However, hate still lingered. Irra refused to give up the crystals to Juri and the World Goverment. She cited the perversness of Noble's dreams and the un-trustworthiness of the World Government. After a cry from her father, she desisted and gave up the crystals. Torque then sent the crystals plumeting to the Moon outside of anyone's grasp.

    There will be a set max of one character per person. There is currently no max for participants, but likely will be capped at 8-10, depending on number of applicants. That will remain GM discretion. In order to promote faction activity, and for fairness sake, there will be a max of 2 characters per faction, except upon GM discretion. Those applicants who are of different factions will get priority over repeat factions.

    NPC Participants
    This Campaign will be a trial run for NPC participants from the players, for story purposes. The participants will be allowed one NPC of their choosing to take part of the campaign. The NPC can also sprout mid-campaign. Said NPC will be scaled in power appropriately. The idea is to promote your individual storylines through the campaign by giving you control over a second. Please orient your NPC choosing to that end. The GM will need to approve said NPC.

    Image: Link
    Biography: The eldest of the Sky Royal family, brother to Majuro, Oldgate was thrown to the Ocean as a child, to stop him from taking the throne. He grew up with the Flexington's, and came back twenty-five years later to reclaim his throne with the power of the WG. Ruled half the Sky for half a century, ushering new peace and ties with the Ocean. Oldgate aims to unite the Sky under a democratic rule of the Sky Council, and fashion it as a safe haven for all races. Called the Sky's soul. He's wonderfully okama.

    "U-u-u-nity of races, it can h-h-h-hapen. T-t-t-oday, we prove thus. T-t-t-today, love for e-e-e-each other brough h-h-human and Sky--p-piean together. Never let g-g-g-g-go of that dream, my children. I-I-I-It is within your grasp. Peace between r-r-r-races."- Oldgate

    [OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS]

    Deadline: Nov, 10, 2017
    Campaign Start: November 12, 2017
    Format: See above


    Faction Slots
    In order to encourage faction engagment, I will only accept two people per faction, if there is enough demand. This does NOT mean that all slots of each crew will have to be filled, and likely won't be. Participants are still chosen at random. It simply means that once the faction spots are filled by random selection, other applicants of those factions will be taken out of the "pool" of applicants.

    Campaign Lore
    For those who will take part of the Campaign, you will NOT need to learn the Campaign Lore, or even read it. It is there to aid in the choosing of whether or not to apply, and to refresh the memory of the players who were involved in SSP. Please be careful of metagaming.

    Name: Indra
    Faction: Marines
    Rank: Rear Admiral
    Appearance: Image
    Biography: Rear Admiral Indra is a staunch militarist that believes in World Government conquest. Because of this idealism, some of the most sinister and extremist individuals within the World Government hierarchy have instructed him to go into the sky, in order to sabotage any alliance between the Sky Islanders and Torgue's faction, and if possible, provoke the locals into anything that could give the World Government justification for issuing a sky conquest. Indra has been ordered to do as such, even if that means going against official protocol, and orders issued by the HQ central Navy command. This, however, places Indra in a difficult situation, as he'll eventually have to decide between two contradicting orders, issued by two opposing sides in an internal struggle within the World Government itself.

    Name: Zelse
    Faction:World Government
    Rank:Vice Admiral
    Image:In Signature
    Biography: Vice Admiral Zelse believes that the World Government is the world's greatest chance for peace in this age of chaos. Because of this belief he feels the need to make sure that the Navy takes an active role in world events and seizes any opportunities that might emerge in order to further the World Government's position. The chaos in the sky will naturally create opportunities for him to take advantage of and so he needs to be ready and positioned to do so.
